Yin Monthly on Feb 2nd: Skeletal Variations

Yin Yoga Monthly at East Side Yoga, Vancouver. BC

Join Danielle for an examination of bones with all of  their wonderful variations  to see how this can effect your yoga practice. Our focus will be on yin, but   This workshop is inspired from my work in completing my 500 hour Yin Yoga Teacher Training with Paul and Suzee Grilley.

We will look at how to make yin yoga accessible to all bodies and begin the journey of recognizing all the variations of poses that could work for different bones. Dive into your practice to understand more thoroughly how to create a yin shape just for you, and as well as how to apply this work in your classes as a teacher of both seated and dynamic asana.  Open to all levels from yin virgins to teachers.

Yin Workshops: Jan and Feb in Vancouver

Yin and Fascia with Danielle Hoogenboom and Harmony Shire, RMT.


January 12th, 2013 at East Side Yoga


The fascial system is the system of tissue responsible for the postures we hold in everyday life. Without it, our bodies would be a puddle of tissue on the ground unable to function. When fascia thickens from injuries and everyday habits, it produces chronic pain from the inability to stretch and move with its surroundings. The better the form of the fascia and posture, the more fluid and effortless are the functions of fascia and all the tissues it holds, including organs, nerves, blood vessels, muscles, bones, and brain and spinal cord. We will examine fascia in the practice of Yin Yoga how it encourages an opening in the deeper fascial tissues, allowing freedom for movement of the deeper structures of the body, such as bones, ligaments, joint capsules, and tendons, which then provides more space for the surrounding tissues to rest and move more comfortably, thus reducing and preventing chronic pain.



The Power of the Water Snake: Kidneys and Bladder

February's Yin Monthly at East Side Yoga will examine and celebrate the Chinese New Year 2013 as a transition into the year of the Water Snake. Water is the element of the Kidney and Bladder meridians, as well as the organs and energy of winter. We will look at a balanced practice to strengthen the power of our inner wisdom and nourish our winter organs for optimal harmony in body, mind and spirit.
